    1. Sequence Java. 
    2. Now you have to Sequence Application A. Before starting Sequencer, Install Java Locally & then Start Sequencing. Once you are done then you have to create CG for Java & Application A.
    3. Now you have to sequence PluginB. Before starting sequencer, Install Java, Application A Locally & then start sequencing with Application Type as "Add-On or Plug-In". Once you are done then you have to create CG for Application A & Plugin B.

    If you feel that this process seems complex & If Plugin B is not used by any other Application, I would suggest you to sequence Application A & Plugin B as a single Package. SO you just have to create a CG for Java & this.

  • You first need to sequence Java - http://packageology.com/2014/02/sequencing-java-the-definitive-guide-part-1/

    Then you have to sequence Application A. Now you have 2 Virtual Packages. Create a Connection Group for Java & Application A.

    Now, you have to sequence Application B. Create a Connection Group for Application A & B.

    You can use Virtual Environments to create CG in SCCM. You can use AppV Management Server Console to create CG if you use AppV Full Infrastructure. or you can create a XML File to create CG as well.

    Full Infrastructure:http://blogs.technet.com/b/appv/archive/2012/11/06/deploying-connection-groups-app-v-5-0.aspx

  • Sequence Java application first. Once done sequence Application A. Now create a connection group( DSC when compared to APP.V 4.6) between these two apps (JAVA & App A). Based on the infrastructure you use, connection group creation may differ.In standalone, you can use powershell and XML file to create and check.

    Detailed Info: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj870811.aspx

    Once done sequence the plugin B using add-in or plug-in option in the sequencer. Now you need to create a connection group again in order to enable communication between Plugin B and App A.

    Note: You need to set Priority based on the requirement as we have two connection group enabled in this scenario.The below link will give you a clear picture about how to use priority to avoid Connection group conflicts.

  • thanks for your information, but I may missed some information.

    Say the ApplicationA name is "abc.exe" and the PluginB name is "plugb.abcplugin", "plugb.abcplugin" can only be opened by "abc.exe"

    thanks
